"I'm extremely motivated going into the 2013 season with Eddie as my crew chief," Newberry said. "He has a successful history of working with young drivers, and I believe his personality will mesh well with mine to create the positive chemistry we need to be successful on the track."
Pardue has three-career wins as a crew chief at the Nationwide Series level with drivers Greg Biffle and Matt Kenseth. The Truck Series season opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway will be Pardue's first race in the series.
"NTS Motorsports has an incredible amount of support behind it," Pardue said. "So I have a ton on confidence going into 2013. Having worked with a lot of talented drivers, I can tell that Brennan and I are going to have a lot of success together."
NTS Motorsports recently announced a merger with Joe Denette Motorsports, creating a two-truck team, the No. 14 Chevrolet driven by Newberry and the No. 9 Chevy driven by Ron Hornaday.
Newberry heads into the season with the experience of 10-career Truck Series starts, all coming in 2012. His best race finish, to date, was a 19th-place showing at Michigan International Speedway in August.
